No, I don't hate electric and I pretty much suck equally on both. ;)
I just like the sound of an acoustic guitar a bit more, plus I don't have to pay that much attention to pickups, amps, effect pedals etc.

Those guys are a pair of HUGE douche nozzles. Lots of skill, lots of ridiculous clothing and antics. I want to yell at them "For fuck's sake, get a goddamned haircut already, we're almost out of the first decade of the new millennium, and you guys are old enough to be my dad."

Long hair is "cool" when you're a kid and your mom makes you get a haircut all the time. When you are 50 years old, and your hair is thinning and you're starting to get age spots on your hand, it is time to stop pretending to be a 20 year old rock star and grow up.

That, and Yngwie is a little chunky for those leather pants. :lol:

Post Re: MUSICIANS! REPORT IN HERE!

we dont "pretend to be anything"

i have long hair because
1)i like it and 2) short hair doesnt suit me
i love rock music (although thats personal choice)

just because one gets older doesnt mean one has to conform to what society thinks they should like/dress etc.

rockstars are actually (on the whole) good people to look up to, unlike pop stars, they have to put effort into where they get too and they dont become one hit wonders overnight. combined with a more laid back attitude, i would love to keep my long hair for as long as i can. like i said though it is personal choice ^_^

i say people with really shaven hair look silly =P

Post Re: MUSICIANS! REPORT IN HERE!

Mostly Bad and self-taught at:

Guitar (acoustic & electric)
Bass
Keyboards
some Brass (Trumpet & French Horn)
Pennywhistle
whatever else I forgot

some skills with Finale, Acid and various VST synths.

Played piano obsessively (but poorly) from an early age, parents never got the clue I might want lessons and given their budget I never asked. Took lessons briefly during college but other things (like a big recession) got in the way. I do have a cousin who is a professional jazz trumpeter. And the college was Oberlin, so I did get to hang out with a lot of true musicians and get access to their toys and library of scores and recordings.

Links on my blog to a few Acid Planet uploads if you think I might be downplaying how bad I am, though none of those feature any identifiable live recordings by moi.

I also DJ an extremely eclectic mix of stuff in Second Life on Wednesdays and Fridays. Avatar: Azadine Umarov.

Piano.
I got up to grade 5 before I stopped taking lessons. Now I just sometimes play recreationally on my keyboard in my bedroom.

I'm not particularly good at any one thing, but I dabble on guitar, bass, keys, and drums.

I've had some formal audio recording training, and have a modest but well-rounded studio in my apartment.

Electric, acoustic and bass guitar. Also compose orchestral stuff and lots of recording.

Cock rock to the max, long hair and loving it.
